Dear Bioc Team,

I noticed already the error and I'm not completely sure why this is 
happening. On appveyor it is going through with no problems. I never 
call the function mcparallel but I did register MulticoreParams() in the 
vignette which could caused the problem. But I'm puzzled why it works on 
appveyor and not on Bioconductor.

I did removed now the MutlicoreParam call. So lets see if it solved the
